June 16, 2015 - Get With the Program

So you're a high school or college coach. Or, worse for you, you're a parent of a high school or college athlete and you've been conscribed to head up the team's fundraising efforts. Your baseball, lacrosse, field hockey, soccer (etc.) team needs to raise money for travel, equipment, coaches stipends...the list goes on and on. Unless you're one of the top 100 D1 schools in the nation, that budget from the school doesn't go very far.

So what are your choices? You can hold events, try to sell items, beg for donations, or sell expensive spirit wear. Some of these options may have worked in the past but here is an idea whose time has come. There's a way for you to raise money without going out and selling things and collecting money, without doing any of the unpleasant and/or time-consuming activities mentioned above.

Eteamprograms is a revolutionary fundraising idea you need to try. They create programs (think roster, photos, schedule and more) that are attractive souvenirs parents, players and family will treasure. What's so unique about a program book you may ask? Well, as the name implies, these program books are electronic which provides two key advantages. One, there is no risk to you to have them make a program for your team. If they were going to physically print your programs there would be minimum orders and inventory for you to try to unload, all of which means there's a chance you could actually lose money. But since eteamprograms are electronic, there is no set number to buy...in fact you don't buy anything at all...they do the program for free. The other advantage is that an eteamprogram can be accessed on a computer or mobile device which means parents in the stands who want to know who number 23 is can easily access the information any time.

How does it turn into a fundraiser, you ask? This is the best part. Eteamprograms will provide you with a forum to have your team's parents, grandparents, local businesses, anyone really, go onto to a custom page they build for you and order shout-out or business ads at a reasonable cost. Eteamprogram keeps a small portion of the funds they collect to cover their costs and sends the rest to you. You don't have to do anything except promote the progam.

When you're planning your next season, plan to make a little money the easy way. You're too busy to be trying to dig up money. Eteamprograms doesn't mind doing it for you.
